Busy bee

I’ve been very busy this month with weddings, events, and portrait sessions. So there has been very little time for blogging, especially with Louie demanding so much time. He is growing like a weed by the way. He is only six months old and weighs 20 pounds and is 27 3/4 inches long (tall). He’s a rolley polley porker and I love it!


He is teething too. Toss in some separation anxiety and that makes him an extremely cranky kido when I’m not around.


On the upside, he has gotten very good at sitting up on his own. Only rarely does he topple over.


Still hates being on his tummy so no crawling yet. All in all, he’s pretty happy.

Do I really have to wake him?

Had to watch last night’s game from the van in the parking lot because the wind off the river was too cold for the baby.

One of the Gents in my office gave each of the ladies a flower today.

You would never know, looking at this photo, that is was only 55 degrees today.

Our bathroom scale died. Here, we give it new life.


Five Months of Love

I look at my son as we lay here in bed with my husband. Both are soundly asleep. It’s hard to believe that five and a half months has gone by since this little man entered our lives.

Yes, it has been difficult at times, but we are so thankful to have him.

He’s learned quite a bit in the last two months alone. He can now lift his head when he’s on his tummy (though he hates being there).

He’s also in love with the new knowledge that he can hold his feet. On more than one occasion, we’ve watched him pull his socks off.

He’s also getting better at sitting up, though sometimes he wobbles and tilts over still. I think he’ll be able to avoid that in the next month.

Other exciting news…he’s started eating “solids.” Right now it’s things like baby cereal, baby food, and puréed fruits and veggies…well, mostly fruits. He won’t eat it if its not sweet. I think he has inherited my sweet tooth.

He’s been to his first baseball game. We went to watch daddy coach the high school team.

And my little man loves it when we read to him. He’s even started “reading” to his teddy. It was so cute! He would look at the page, then start babbling, then look at his teddy, and babble some more.



When it’s all said and done, I know I am so blessed to have this little man in my life. I can’t wait to see what the next five months will bring.

The road my in laws live on is beautifully surrounded by ancient oak trees. I love this drive every day to pick my son up from their house after work.

There are little moments like this when my son falls back to sleep with my hand in his that I am thankful for all I have and know I am truly blessed.
